'yum makecache' exits on unreachable repo with 'skip_if_unavailabe=1' set

Present on RHEL5 too
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #769864 +++
Description of problem:
SSIA. 'yum update' does not have this problem, unreachable repos with skip_if_unavailable=1 are skipped
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. set up a repo:
baseurl=<url that is valid but returns 404>
2. run yum --disablerepo='*' --enablerepo test makecache
yum exits complaining that it can not download info for test repo:
$BASEURL: [Errno 14] PYCURL ERROR 22 - "The requested URL returned error: 404"
Trying other mirror.
Error: Cannot retrieve repository metadata (repomd.xml) for repository: test. Please verify its path and try again
yum skips repo

You have enabled only one repo, and Yum did skip that. 'skip_if_unavailable=1' does not prevent Yum from printing error messages (that's intended).
Could you try '--enablerepo test --enablerepo other' too? This works upstream, but I don't have RHEL6 at hands. Thanks!

This exactly does not work in RHEL:
# yum makecache ; echo $?
Loaded plugins: auto-update-debuginfo, refresh-packagekit, rhnplugin
[other repo metadata fetched]
<repo_URL>: [Errno 14] PYCURL ERROR 22 - "The requested URL returned error: 404"
Trying other mirror.
Error: Cannot retrieve repository metadata (repomd.xml) for repository: <repo>. Please verify its path and try again
yum should ignore the error and keep going through the rest of the repos, it exits with 1 instead.
